From what I can tell, the band sounds happy to be there. They sound very enthusiastic and they play most of the songs well. Out Of Control, a rarer Boy Tour song, is played along with Touch. Overall, the band plays the setlist well but it's greatly hindered by the sound quality.


The sound quality is one of the worst on the Boy Tour. It's very muffled and has too much background noise. It's hard to hear the songs, especially I Will Follow. You have to really pay attention to comprehend what Bono is saying most of the time. Even taking it's age into account, I've seen much better Boy Tour recordings.
Recording: Audience microphone - 1.5 stars


The audience seems to be focused on the band and not mindlessly chattering during their performance. They cheer after most of the songs. Again, the audio quality makes it hard to tell if they are passionate or not.


The highlights are Touch and An Cat Dubh. The show would be so much better if a good audio source was found. Only listen to this show if you are a true Boy and early era U2 fan.
